  1. Brian b the bumpers are polished steel not chrome it is one of the things I am most proud of on the car I came up with the idea and followed it to the end and they came out great. The gauges are original I just cleaned them up I was lucky. The paint is enamel is called Air Cruser Red and is an original color for the 39 Dodge .

    Hydro dipping I did my 39 and it came out beautiful and very reasonable.
  3. I went the hydro dipping route and it came out beautiful a dark burled walnut woodgrain it is inexpensive did the dash and door frames. Good luck

    OK I took the top of the master cylinder off and took the fluid out and cleaned it out real good and blew it out with my air hose and cleaned the 2 small holes out put new fluid in and it works good. I think the problem was the extension they put on got rusty and got in the fluid thus clogging the return I did not replace the extension just put a new plug in and will keep my eye on the pedal and if I see it getting closer to the top I will know there is a problem. Thank you guys for the help I did not want to take that MC off again it is a real bitch to get to. Gary

    I rebuilt the master cylinder when putting the car back together so hardly any use on it and the flex lines I will have to check I don't remember but if they loooked bad I probably changed them I will let you know. I am going to try and dig into it tomorrow when I get back from the Doc's.

    What could be my problem is when I got the car it had an extension on the master cylinder fill cap that comes up by the steering column to make it easier to fill should I take that off and use the correct fill cap I am thinking yes. Gary

    Took the 39 out for a ride yesterday the longest so far and when I got home my brake pedal was up as far as it would go and the brakes were on and just got the car in the garage before they were on fully and the brake lights were on and had to disconnect the battery. I am going to bleed the brakes to relieve the pressure or should I look elsewhere for the problem. Thanks Gary
  8. Can someone please post a couple of pics of their throttle linkage for a 39 dodge or plymouth I want to see if mine is hooked up correctly I am having trouble getting mine to idle down all of the way. As always thanks for all of the help. Gary

    Amp gauge

    I never took the wires off the gauge just left the gauges hanging. When battery is disconnected it still shows full discharge. Weird Huh.

    Amp gauge

    Had my dash out to get hydro dipped in woodgrain and when I put it all back together the amp gauge shows at full discharge all of the time any ideas as to why. Thanks Gary
  11. Like Silverdome said ask questions this website is a goldmine of information make sure you do a search of old posts first there is so much info there good luck.
  12. Thanks Brian you have been a lot of help in the past.
  13. Andy the horns work fine when I hook them up to a seperate horn button. I replaced the wire that goes through the steering column and soldered the wire to the brass t shaped thing but was just wondering about the cup that everything sits in. I will try the horn when I put the steering wheel back on I am waiting for my dash to come back from being hydro Dipped in a dark woodgrain pattern.
  14. My horn assy consists of the horn button itself then the horn ring next the brass piece with the wire in it that is held down by 3 small screws followed by the horn spring then the contact cup which on my 39 is a round piece with a hole through the center and a small lip on the edge which they call the contact cup but mine only has a small lip not a cup like it shows in the manual how is this piece a contact cup and what is supposed to make contact with it. The 38 Dodge is different not sure about the 40 any info would be appreciated. Thanks
